My first post evar, eek! Like all new posters I've been lurking for a while and dying to share some of my crafts/art. So, finally, I am.
This is a project I did for my senior portfolio class (two years ago). I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, a chronic disease in which your large intestine is inflamed. My whole senior year I was sick and in and out of the hospital. So, I wanted to make a representation of how I was feeling.
I wrapped a board in the material you wrap casts with. It's in a roll and you just wet it and let it dry, not sure of he proper name. I used acrylic to draw the pills. The fingers are actually off of a friends sculpture project. It was a cast of her hand, but the fingers broke off. I wanted them to look like they are poking the "colon".
